I was actually going to start this thread after my Spider-Man Marathon. As much as you hate the genre, great minds........

As for cliche scenes, anything that isn't "natural", i.e. born with it (Superman), be it Hero or Villain, they all share a common element.....

The Lab Effect - All powers of the Hero / Villain originates in a Lab, where their experiments go horribly wrong (Hulk, Doc Ock, Green Goblin). Of course there are variations that are "simplistic" in that all it takes is a spider bite. A good alternative is Daredevil who is blinded by toxic waste, but doesn't have super powers like Spidey or Superman, but just harnesses his other senses to get an advantage over others.

The Damsel In Distress - Every Hero has girl that he is in love with and in every case, she is in harms way. Well, Daredevil has a good twist in that his object of affection comes in the form of ass kicking Elektra .
